Do people suffering from dementia become violent?


If an individual has become violent, they are probably entering a middle stage of dementia. My father-in-law became verbally violent and we believe he also acted violently toward my mother-in-law, who ended up in the hospital twice. It was not easy for us to determine whether what happened was an accident or not. If someone becomes violent, it can be very difficult for the family, but it is even more important to take action, especially if there is anyone who could get hurt.
